About this assignment

We are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic couple with positivity and a pro-active approach to life, preferably on a long-term basis at our Chateau nestled in the charming Seven Valleys region of Haute de France,

A short drive to the Côte d'Opale.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

The Chateau guardians will be required to manage changeovers and prepare the Chateau for guests every Saturday along with the weekly laundry, The garden requires a mowing every week using a ride-on-mower & strimming the edges when necessary.

Basic French and excellent DIY skills would be advantageous for you to immerse in the local culture and occasionally when required to handle maintenance tasks around the property, although google translate works very well, so French is not a deal breaker. With two of you at the helm, the responsibilities become more manageable and enjoyable.

What are the good features of the property and location

Our Chateau is just a leisurely 10-minute stroll away from a lovely lively town. From quaint cafes to a vibrant weekly market, there’s 4 major Supermarkets, medical facilities, bakeries, and an array of charming shops and eateries, all within easy reach and appropriately 10 minutes from the Chateau

Previous guardians have loved living at the Chateau and some have lived here for over 4.5 years.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

We rent the Chateau out for half the year ( 26 weeks ) to tourists on a self catering basis.

In exchange from April to October you will receive 400 euros per month in return in exchange for approx 20 hours per week,

During the off-season (October to March) in exchange, you will receive 150 euros as the house is closed to guests and there is nothing else to do other than keeping an eye on the Chateau.

Also included is a cozy one-bedroom furnished garden gite apartment with complimentary utilities & unlimited WIFI.

There is also a car available for use.

Can I bring my own pets?

No, sorry.
